Bitcoin – Tapped Resistance 7 Separate Days



By The Moralis Research Team

Welcome back, everybody. It’s been another exciting week in crypto, and we’re pleased to bring you the next edition of Moralis Research. Today, we will be interested in getting your feedback on the content of these reports. Please take a few minutes to give us your feedback here.

This week, the biggest storyline in the Macro environment was concerned with a potential de-dollarisation as we saw more and more countries sign trade agreements in currencies other than the dollar. 

China and Russia are made headlines for their efforts to reduce the use of the US dollar in international trade. China and Brazil have agreed to trade in their own currencies rather than the US dollar, while Saudi Arabia has joined the Shanghai Cooperation Organization as a “dialogue partner.” Meanwhile, the US is holding a Summit for Democracy with over 100 countries, though over Zoom. While de-dollarization has been discussed since the 2010 banking crisis, its effects remain largely propaganda. China has launched the Cross-border Interbank Payment System (CIPS) to process yuan transactions, but the scale of global trade carried out in USD or euros is vastly different from that of CNY. While China holds more dollars in reserve than is traded globally in CNY, the US dollar was used in over 88% of all foreign exchange trades worldwide in April 2019.

Furthermore, we continued to see regulators push back against crypto. US Senator Elizabeth Warren has reiterated her strong anti-crypto stance in a recent tweet, stating that she is building an “anti-crypto army” to counter the growing popularity of cryptocurrencies. Warren has been vocal in her opposition to the cryptocurrency industry, calling for greater regulation or even its removal. This comes at a time when the US government has been cracking down on the cryptocurrency industry, with the closure of crypto-friendly banks and increased SEC regulations, leading some to suggest that this is part of a larger effort to bring down the industry known as Operation Choke Point 2.0.

We’ll always provide you with our research to help with your education. We’ll keep close track of the main developments and evolution of the niches in blockchain so that you get the best of the new knowledge. When you’ve finished reading your report, please remember to fill out the feedback form, your feedback is valued, and we’re always open to suggestions.

Cryptocurrency Market Overview and Analysis

By CTO Larsson

Friday 31st of March, 2023 11:00 UTC

For those new to my analysis, I do trend trading over long timeframes.

Global tech only has two outcomes: Giant success or catastrophic failure. Tech either does a 100x or goes to zero, with little in-between. Before reaching either end point, the asset price will trend for extended periods.

My process aims to give exposure during those periods of established trends. That way I can enter with more capital for any given risk, compared to a hold only approach. I don’t try to catch tops or bottoms. I don’t worry about intraday movements. My style of analysis is not suitable for day traders or range traders. When it comes to tech, the big gains come from catching big moves over long periods of time.

This is an analysis at one moment in time. Market structure can change in an instant. When presented with new information, I will adjust my opinion accordingly. Technical analysis of historical data is not a prediction of the future. It is a tool that can aid in finding setups for favorable risk-reward and points of invalidation.

You are always at risk of losing all invested funds. I don’t give advice to buy or sell specific assets. The education and software tools are timeless and generic for any asset. Rather than relying on subjective market opinions, I apply the principles of technical analysis formulated in 1930s on historical charts. Anyone can apply the same process and get the same result. Technical Analysis does not predict the future. It is a tool to find setups for controlled risk/reward. Larsson Line does not predict the future. It is a mathematical formula for trend expression. My objective with this report is to help you reflect on your own analysis, not to replace it.

Disclosure: I hold Bitcoin and Ethereum exposure through company ownership and in my personal capacity, as ETP price tracker certificates through my bank.

Trend Analysis

Bitcoin (BTC)

Trend is up. 7 separate taps on $28,600 resistance.

Ethereum (ETH)

ETH/BTC is ranging. Moving towards range bottom.

Binance (BNB)

BNB/BTC looks bad. Trend down on all timeframes. Broke key support.

Cardano (ADA)

ADA/BTC looks bad. Trend down. Broke all supports.

Solana (SOL)

SOL/BTC is right at support. Trend is down. I took a gamble entry.



XRP/BTC is ranging

Polygon (MATIC)

MATIC/BTC got rejected at range resistance


Moment of truth.


Trend is up. Moved up to the range top


Trend is up. Parabolic rise still intact


Tapped Resistance 7 Separate Days

Bitcoin has tested $28,600 resistance on 7 separate days now. If the supply at that level eventually exhausts, the move up can be explosive. Compare the breakout through 25k on March 17th.

We can’t know how much supply is there, and if the demand will be enough to eat through it.

But as the trend is up, the advantage of probability is with the bulls. My bet is therefore that we will eventually break through this one too. I will keep buying dips to support, if we get them.

It’s really that simple. If the situation changes, I’ll change my actions then.
